Description:
The SS Gaelic was the ship that famously transported the first 102 Korean immigrants to the United States. Note that this is the SS Gaelic acquired by the White Star Line in 1885, not the SS Gaelic acquired in 1873.

History

The SS Gaelic was built by Harland & Wolff of Belfast, Northern Ireland, for the White Star Line and weighed 4,206 tons. The maiden voyage was on 28 February 1885, and the ship made Pacific crossings for the Occidental & Oriental Steamship Co., from 1885 to 1904. The passage of 102 Korean immigrants to Hawaii began on 29 December 1902 in Nagasaki, Japan, and ended on 13 January 1903, when the ship arrived in Honolulu. The Gaelic was refitted by Harland & Wolff in 1905 and sold to the Pacific Steam Navigation Co. in the same year and renamed Callao, but was retired and broken up in 1907.
